Default Advice On Best Strollers

Hello Hello!
So I'm debating between a couple strollers and would like your advice.
My max ratio is 10 kids under two (including my own) with two staff.
I've already decided on getting one wonderfold quad wagon. I want this because it will work great with my own kids (4.5 and 15 months) outside of daycare.

In addition, I'm debating on getting a zoe quad stroller https://zoestrollers.com/products/zo...31423538528290

Its an awesome stroller than can convert to a double.
Pros: sunshades are huge, folds up really small, back seats lay flat for young babies.
Cons: umbrella stroller wheels.

Or

Someone locally is selling a 4 seater kinder van https://www.communityplaythings.com/...44-kindervan-4

Pros: super sturdy, awesome wheels
Cons: doesn't fold so storage will be a challenge, minimum age is 6 months

It does need new seat covers and shades (about $40 each).

I'm so torn on which to get. I know I'll only be able to seat 8 kids so 2 kids will need to walk or be worn (most likely my own).

Or

Do I hold out and keep saving to get a 6 seater stroller to go with the wonderfold wagon. If so, which stroller do you recommend?

I’ve had a Foundations 4 seater similar to the Zoe for almost 10 years and love it. Aside from replacing a brake and a wheel bearing its held up amazingly.

How about a choo choo wagon with an extra wagon. You can pull 4 or even 5 kids. Although 3 to 4 kids is my limit. Drawbacks...takes up a lot of space. But they’re really sturdy plus each kid is separated. Nobody poking or kicking somebody else.

I had triplets that used one when I was a nanny but it's been a while. Do they have sun shades? Are comfy are they? Are they super noisy with the plastic wheels? How young of a baby can use it?

No sun shades. I think they’re pretty comfy. The kids really enjoy riding in them. Not terribly noisy but hard to get up curbs. I’ve used a boppy pillow around babies once they’re around 9 months old to give a little extra support. For tiny babies I used an infant car seat fastened carefully to the wagon with tarp straps. And made sure to have a protective sun shade for them. I can pull 4 kids with an wagon extension added on. And a trailer on the back to haul 1st aid kit and drinks. No luck keeping drinks in the cup holders. I always end up with at least one kid that likes to chuck things.
